Once you understand the assignment, you may still have trouble getting started.
If you have trouble choosing a topic:
  • Get some ideas from your classmates.
  • Set up an appointment with a free tutor in the NCC Learning Center.
  • Do some exploratory searches in a periodical databases like ProQuest and EBSCOhost. Look at the abstracts or summaries of articles that interest you; they may give you ideas for topics.
  • If you still need help, speak with your professor or a reference librarian.
